Pink Flamingo

Today was an incredibly beautiful day in Sheboygan. It seems like Memorial Day weekend is either beautiful or full of rain.. there is not usually an in-between. I am happy that so far this year it has been simply gorgeous out!

I purchased this v-neck pink cardi yesterday from Dressbarn, because they went to 40% off this week. They come in a wide variety of colors..and you can purchase yours here.

I absolute LOVE cardigans! Polka-dot cardigans, glitter cardigans, plain cardigans, I love them all..A cardigan is an essential in every wardrobe. If you are not ready for a bright color or pattern, at least invest in a navy, black, and white one. They work great over dresses, with a plain t-shirt and scarf, or a dressy blouse for the office.

 I paired my new pink cardi with this graduated navy and white striped dress from JC Penny (purchased last year, about $14). Besides white, there are many other colors that complement navy well. These colors include: pink (fuchsia), coral, geranium, yellow, and red (think 4th of July).

Pink nails by Ulta, Navy string tassel bracelet ($3 from Groopdealz), Gold chain bracelet ($1 thrift), cream and gold spike bracelet ($3.50 thrift), and Michael Kors white flats added some of the finishing touches to today's ensemble.

Since I only worked until 3 pm today, I was able to spend some time later this afternoon with Shayne..since he said I could choose whatever I wanted to do today, I chose to go fishing :)

Fishing is always something that I have enjoyed (although I HATE eating seafood & fish). I am a catch and release sort of gal. Growing up my mom spent countless hours sitting in car reading while my brother and I would go fishing. Today Shayne and I went back to one of those places that we always called the Lagoon in Sheboygan Falls. Although the fish were not biting I did manage to hook two pan fish.

I was obviously not going to wear my dress while fishing.. so I changed outfits, while still styling my pink cardigan. Here I paired it with a white v-neck T and floral navy shorts from Dressbarn. As I stated earlier, cardigans work great, because they can be both worn more casual or dressy depending on what they are styled with.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend & Thank you to all those who have served and continue to serve for our country!
